Being a wedding planner, I've listened to the visions of many brides; the day they've always dreamed of. Many of these visions involve gorgeous florals, including centerpieces, bouquets, and even altar arrangements. But let's face it, weddings can be expensive and our dreams are sometimes a little different than reality. Reality says that not every wedding requires an abundance of flowers to be beautiful. If your floral budget won't allow or you have a sensitivity to flowers, you can create non-floral centerpieces for your wedding and still have the wedding of your dreams.
Non-floral centerpieces allow you the opportunity to be just as creative, showcasing more of your personality even some of your hobbies. With my company, I like "telling your story through the details" and non-floral centerpieces gives me the the chance to tell your guests who you are and give them something more to talk about while sitting at the reception table. When creating centerpieces, I often use spray paint and hot glue to transform an object into different colors and formats. For your wedding, you can create centerpieces from objects that reflect the season, the outdoors, or your favorite books, songs, photos, and wine. Candles, feathers, fruits, seashells, river rocks, and tree branches are also good choices when creating non-floral centerpieces. I've rounded up some of my favorite non-floral centerpieces to inspire you if you're choosing not to have flowers at your wedding.
